Enjoy Your Life w/Really Reasonable Ribbon

Welcome by, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a pretty card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using several of their wonderful products.  Not only can you always find the perfect ribbons and trims for every project at Really Reasonable Ribbon; but you can also find fun things like  Mulberry Flowers, Adhesives, Embellishments and SO much more.
This card started with some cardstocks that I attached using strips of Scor-Tape to securely attach them.  Next, I used more of the Scor-Tape to add the patterned paper layer.  I also cut a scalloped frame using a die and another patterned paper, and that's also attached using Scor-Tape.  I did a bit of machine stitching around my card in a deep green thread.  I added several accent stickers, washi tape, hanging tags, a stamped sentiment (miss you), miniature pink staples.  On the left-hand card border, you'll see two small snippets of pink and green stitched (retired) Maya Road canvas stipe ribbons, a Cotton Blend Maya Road green striped ribbon, and a Yellow Gingham Ribbon peeking out from behind the card.
The pretty ribbon accent includes a length of Yellow Gingham Ribbon, Light Pink Gingham Ribbon, Solid Lemon Yellow Baker's Twine, Double Head Stamens, Red Rosebuds, bundled Green Burlap String, and a  Pearl Heart Ribbon Slider.  I have a few of the Double Head Stamens positioned a bit lower than the others so that they cascade down my card a bit.  There are always so many lovely things at Really Reasonable Ribbon to help you create something lovely.  I encourage you to take some time to stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon to look around and pick up a few new things.  You really will enjoy their wonderful selection and fabulous products.
Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I'm always so grateful for your visits and I appreciate your comments and input.  I look forward to visiting your blog this week in return.  Stay creative and have fun in your craft room, friends.


Here's where I'm playing along:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog - Favorite Technique - For me, that always seems to be machine stitching.  I just love what hand and/or machine stitching adds.  I also love texture.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog - Add Some Texture - I added lots of texture with my layers of cardstocks, patterned papers, ribbons, tags, etc.  LOTS of layers in there.


  1. WOW so much gorgeous detail on this wonderful card Karen - amazing

  2. This is beautiful, Karen. Love all of the layers, embellishment and colors! I agree, machine stitching is a favorite of mine as well.


Thanks for your comments. They mean so much to me.
